Marco is obsessive and possessive of Antonia. He still burns for her after a year. However he can't permanently make Antonia his own because his wealthy family's respectability won't allow a woman of the world to be his wife. He can't also bear to let her go especially when her ex-lover has come into town. Can he disregard all propriety to keep the woman he loves or watch her go back to her former lover?
Antonia has known happiness in Marco's arms. But she suspects that her lover is tiring of her and wants out. She knows that the relationship wouldn't last and she still hopes that he will come to love her as she loves him. She longs to tell him her secrets: the truth about the Mirror Woman, her wealthy father who has rejected both her and her mother, her mother who became a mistress, Stefan Krantz's love for her mother, and her paintings. Could she gamble away her secrets and still win Marco?
